Our scholarships are made as a reduction of fees and give students opportunities they might not otherwise have.
We recognise that every student is different and all shine in their own way. We see hard work and determination as an indicator of a potential scholarship candidate and also recognise that there are many other reasons we may consider when selecting those to receive this grant.
In short, we are investing in the potential this person has to positively impact the community in the future, not merely assess their achievement in the past. Scholarships are made as a reduction in fees distributed evenly across the duration of their course of study.
*Excludes students who are eligible for Smart & Skilled or other funding.
What we look for when assessing potential scholarship candidates
Financial, health, family or personal circumstances
Previous study, work or community participation
Your desires, dreams, goals, or acts of service
Applicants must provide a statement in support of their application indicating how they believe the receipt of the scholarship will assist them with their studies and in their future career. This statement should give a sufficient explanation of the applicant’s background and current circumstances to enable the College to assess their eligibility, need and merit.
Selection of this scholarship will be determined on the basis of the application/personal statement, academic records, letters to support the application, portofilio (letters of support, awards, samples of work etc) and fulfilment of the equity requirements of the scholarship and, if required, an interview.
how to apply
No ATAR? No problem! With an entry requirement of Year 10 completion for domestic students, you could be only one year to a career.
If you are a domestic student studying a Diploma course at Bedford, you may be eligible to apply for a VET Student Loan (VSL).
